6 Ghanaian Artistes To Feature If You Want A Hit Song Any Day



Making a hit song is a very difficult task. It’s even more difficult when an artist gets the hit song and he’s not able to sustain it in subsequent releases.
However, there are some artists in Ghana who seem to have hit songs embedded in their DNAs.

These artists, who are all males, have a distinctive voice and a catchy chorus they bring to a song that makes it a hit no matter what.

KUBILIVE will shed light on 6 of these artists who help other Ghanaian musicians soar whenever they feature them.

1. Kelvyn Boy

Without any shred of doubt, Kelvyn Boy is one of the hottest music commodities we have presently. His ability to turn an otherwise ordinary song into a monster hit has made him one of the most featured artists in Ghana.

His rise has unfortunately coincided with his spat with former mentor, Stonebwoy but that has done little to take away his shine. He’s simply in a different league now.

2. Kidi

KiDi is arguably the biggest artiste Lynx Entertainment boss Richie Mensah has ever managed. He’s currently one of the most sought-after artistes of his generation and a master of hit songs despite coming onto the scene not too long ago.

He did a good job on Captain Planet’s ‘I Miss You Die’ song. In fact, he’s the reason why I love that particular song.

He also made Samini, Stonebwoy, and Obibini’s songs a massive hit. He currently has the biggest song making waves all over the country and beyond dubbed ‘Cheese.’ KiDi is in a class of his own, no two ways about that.

KiDi, real name Dennis Nana Dwamena became the 4th winner of the MNT Hitmaker reality show in 2015. He beat CJ, Gunshot, Abena, and Yaw to walk home with a GH¢100,000.00 recording deal. He signed to Richie Mensah’s Lynx Entertainment record label after the competition.

3. Akwaboah Jnr

Although Akwaboah Jnr himself has not found his feet in the music industry, he’s no doubt a hitmaker when he’s featured by other artistes.

His smooth silky voice is admired by his own colleagues no wonder they love to feature him frequently.

Remember he’s also a good songwriter who wrote the award-winning ‘Daa Ke Daa’ for Becca and ‘Ayeyi Ndwom’ for DSP Kofi Sarpong.

6. King Promise

Sarkodie definitely saw the potential of King Promise when their paths crossed for the first time, after which he helped him gain prominence. The clean-shaven artiste has risen to become one of the biggest artists in Ghana although he burst onto the scene relatively not too long ago.

Born Gregory Bortey Newman, the singer has won a huge fanbase with his great vocal abilities and his unforgettable big sneakers which he has incorporated into his branding.

He has a lot of hit songs to his name and is one of the most featured artists presently. The singer who is currently 23-year-old attended De Kings Academy for his childhood education in Ghana. He later proceeded to Nungua Senior High School for his secondary school education.

All songs that he has been featured on have been hits, with Sarkodie’s ‘Anadwo’, and ‘Can’t Let You Go’ are just a few examples.

5. Kuame Eugene

Definitely, you don’t expect this list to be complete without the ‘Rockstar’ Kuame Eugene making it. Eugene and his label mate KiDi are the most featured artists in recent times and we think you know why.

Just like KiDi, Kuame Eugene has a unique formula he brings to every song he’s featured on. He has been able to single-handedly make songs he’s featured on a massive jam.

Kuame Eugene is also a product of MTN Hitmaker who was a contestant in season 5 in 2016, where he finished third overall. He was signed shortly afterward to Lynx Entertainment and has gone on to release several hit singles.

6. Mugeez

Mugeez is one half of R2Bees- one of the most commercially successful music duos of all time in Ghana. He’s such a great talent who often escapes the radar as he himself prefers to live a low profile.

Mugeez’s real name is Rashid Abdul Mugeez. He is an award-winning Ghanaian singer and songwriter. Ghanaian artists know his quality so it comes as no surprise he’s featured dominantly in most hit songs produced in Ghana.

Moesha Is Mad Forever : Ibrah One



Millionaire Ibrah One has waded into the current condition of the former slay queen saying that she is mad forever.

According to him, what Moesha is going through at the moment is a warning to other slay queens who have visited India to seek spiritual protection.

Ibrah One who sometime last year was having mental problem in a social media post made it clear that netizen should forget about Moesha.

In his post he made it clear that netizens should ignore all the people and pastors claiming they can bring Moesha Buduong back to normal because its not possible.

He posted: “Moesha is mad and can never come back to normal again, nobody on earth can bring her back to normal again. This should serve as a warning to some of the slay queens who goes to India for Charms. #Ibrahone”.

Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ Listening Event Breaks Apple Streaming Record



Kanye West packed the house for his ‘DONDA’ listening party — but he packed in a whole lot more than just that … dude set a record on Apple that no artist has ever come near.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Ye’s album event this past week at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta broke the Apple Music Global Livestream record … with 3.3 million viewers who tuned in on their screens.

That’s a heck of a lot more than the previous record, we’re told, which was set by Gucci Mane and Jeezy in their highly-anticipated Verzuz battle earlier last year — at a reported 1.8 million viewers. Kanye practically doubled the number as a solo act!

BTW, the ‘DONDA’ moment was a one-time deal — meaning it aired live for people to stream, but hasn’t gone back up on Apple for folks to watch again. So, that figure — 3.3M unique sets of eyeballs — is a one and done. It’d be a little harder to calculate if the thing was in circulation.

Our sources tell us once Kanye releases Donda — it’s projected to drop August 6 — the Atlanta performance will be posted to Apple for fans to watch again.

Like we first told you … even though the event is over, the party’s still going for Kanye himself … who’s moved into MB Stadium (temporarily) to finish the album. Apparently, he was so inspired by the energy around him Thursday — he just nestled in and got back to work.

With all the hype — and hard data to back it now — ya gotta figure the numbers for this album will follow suit … and perhaps reach new heights that even Ye hasn’t seen.

Sarkodie Partners Adidas To Drive Africa’s Creative Economy



Ghanaian musician and entrepreneur Michael Owusu Addo, popularly known as Sarkodie, and Adidas have announced a unique partnership that will see both parties collaborate to drive Africas’ creative economy.

Kicking off the relationship is Nutmegs’ (Adidas representative in Ghana) partnership on the exclusive listening session of Sarkodie’s upcoming album ‘No Pressure’.

The partnership also ties into Nutmeg’s Creators Programme, where together with inspiring celebrity talent in music, sports, and fashion, creators are urged to make a statement and leave their mark.

The innovation is a celebration of the brand’s global member community and an opportunity to bring people together through its curated program of digital experiences.

The ‘No Pressure’ album is a result of months of work and embodies the quality that has come to be associated with the Sarkodie brand.

This partnership is being curated by Eagle Plug Entertainment, a modern entertainment company providing world-class solutions for the African entertainment ecosystem.
